Why did USC coach Steve Sarkisian reach out to Ed Orgeron? A source within the program said the offer was probably made to make the players happy and show them Sarkisian is concerned about their happiness.
Orgeron is not believed to be interested, a fact even players are aware of.
“Coach O doesn’t want to be an assistant coach,’’ safety Dion Bailey said.
That appears certain with reports Sarkisian is trying to hire Washington State defensive line coach Joe Salave’a.
